“That’s it, four years of track and a medal,” Layne said. “I’m going to feel a lot better when I have it around my neck. It sucked when I missed 13 at first, but I sat down and thought, ‘That’s it, it’s over,’ but I realize that I was vaulting against a very good guy over there. He deserves all the credit he gets, he’s a 13-plus vaulter and had 14 in his grasp. He should have had that too, I have no problem losing to him, he’s a great guy.
